TENERIFE, EL MÉDANO - WATERSPORTS PARADISE Stormrider Outriggers Stormrider can be found on the Island of Tenerife, one of the seven (volcanic) Canary Islands. The archipelago is situated in the Atlantic Ocean approx. 1.000 km south of the European mainland and just 150 km west of the West African coast. Tenerife’s climate is one of the most constantly pleasant in the world with 330 days of sunshine per year and with average temperatures between 19 and 27°C all year round. There is a great deal of variation in climate from place to place on the island, and it is possible to pick the kind of weather you want to experience by moving around the island. Unbearable heat is rare though does occur when winds blow over from the Sahara. We are based on the south east coast, at the watersports paradise town of El Médano, just a few kilometres from the south airport. El Médano is the island’s “coolest” resort with its Tenerife's kite-boarding and wind-surfing capital with national and world championships being held every year. Other watersports associated to El Médano are traditional surfing, stand-up paddle-boarding and Hawaiian outrigger canoeing. Frequented by watersports men and women, families and spectators, El Médano’s atmosphere is laid back and friendly. There are no cabaret tribute acts, no “English” bars, no tourist shops filled with tat and, just as importantly, no designer shops with prices as inflated as their egos. There’s just the sun, the surf, the beach and the buzz of bars and restaurants that are as laid back as El Médano’s cosmopolitan mix of Europeans and locals.
